Building Consultancy

Providing sound, reasoned advice at every stage of your property journey

Buildings are expensive assets to acquire, manage and operate, and need to meet the needs of a varied range of stakeholders, e.g. Landlords, Tenants, Investors and end-users. Our Building Consultancy is client-focused, and we pride ourselves on providing advice tailored to each client’s particular requirements.

With backgrounds in commercial building surveying, client representative, project and property management, our team’s collective experience across various sectors of the commercial industry enables us to take a holistic view of property, and to provide sound, reasoned and practical advice to our clients and colleagues.

Technical Expertise

We believe technical knowledge is crucial, and our team has an excellent track record in delivering and applying this knowledge. We know that developing an understanding of the construction, condition and operation of any built asset is an essential step in fully advising our clients to the highest standard.

By undertaking rigorous surveys and inspections of the building fabric and supporting services, and reviewing existing building documentation, our team provide the fullest picture of a property condition.

From there, we investigate the feasibility of any client requirements, e.g. disposal/acquisition, refurbishment/upgrading, whilst taking into account the Life Cycle of the property, along with operational and end-user requirements insofar as possible, to future-proof the asset.
